Winegrowers Supplies  -  Champagne bottle Corkers and wire Muselet tighteners

  Semi manual corker:-

SL model PL-3 CHAMPAGNA:  1690 Euros

     The machine is 'assisted' by an air cylinder. Pressing the stainless steel handle down releases the air cylinder, which enables the compression of the jaws through a special mechanism and pushes the cork into the bottle. An air compressor is required, to replenish the air cylinder; a compressor with a 50 litre tank is suggested.

For 375ml, 500ml, 750ml or 1500ml champagne bottles:
champagne cork diameter 24 to 30.5 mm, cork height up to 49 mm;
bottle diameter up to 130 mm, bottle height 260 to 390 mm.
300 to 400 champagne bottles per hour are possible.

Four hard-polythene compressing jaws, strong stainless steel frame, weighs 25 kilos.

This model can also be used to cork normal wine bottles,
with cork diameters 24 to 28 mm, and up to 49 mm high. 
500 to 600 wine bottles per hour are possible.

or SL model PL-3M CHAMPAGNA for Magnum bottles: 2300 Euros

  Champagne corks

  Notes:-
  When placing the cork in the jaws, the 'best end' of the cork should be at the bottom, that's the end that will be in contact with the wine.
  Initially the stainless steel rod will not be in the centre of the cork, because two of the jaws only move slightly, the other two jaws move inwards to compress the cork.
    The top of the cork should be at the same level as the top of white jaws', then pull down the manual handle.
    Then press the button on the left hand side to activate the pneumatic cylinder, which then closes the jaws and pushes down on the centre of the cork.
